Business Spotlight

Bank 34 Building Alamogordo Business Spotlight
During F.A.N. Club, we do a drawing from our attendees. Whoever wins, is our Featured Business in “Business Spotlight” This time, it was Bank 34. Located at 500 E. 10th Street. Open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Their Drive through is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. When we asked Bank 34 to tell us about their business, Melissa Esquero, Vice President and Director of Marketing at Bank 34 sent the following: “The spirit and rewards of standing independent are evident around us every day. Discovering a local bank that truly seeks to unleash the value and power of your creative ideas for family or business is far less certain. Standing the test of time and change since 1934, we have stood by customers who share the passion of individualism and innovation. Our genuine brand of customer care has been shaped by our own lessons learned from what it takes to remain independent and authentic in a world of large banks. The way you choose to bank with us may be changing at the speed of technology, but rest assured whatever choices you make, Bank 34 will always be true to the highest level of personal service. We’re proud to stand independent and feel privileged to help you do the same.”
